Sandra Wallin is a belief builder and transformation catalyst whose laser sharp focus helps budding visionaries move from stuck to stupendous, quickly and easily.
Women who work with Sandra learn how to tranform fear, turn struggle into ease, and unbridle themselves from feeling there is never enough time or money so they can grow into spaciousness, abundance and freedom.
Known as a change agent, motivational teacher and sacred space holder, Sandra is a transformer who debunks the myth that change is painful and slow.
Her extensive background in belief change psychology, nature based teachings and equine guided learning and leadership have inspired invitations to teach and lecture around the world, most recently at the request of Dr. Bruce Lipton, her mentor, friend and author of The Biology of Belief.
As a lifelong learner Sandra has earned Bachelor’s Degrees in Science and Education and a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology. A school teacher and counsellor for over twenty years and a psychotherapist for nearly as long, she credits horses as being her greatest teachers.
Sandra believes in joining our avocation with our vocation and horses have always been her bridge.
Awesome - we've got answers!
Do we ride horses? All of the activities and time spent with the horses will be from the ground. No riding or horse experience is required.
What if I’m scared of horses? All activities can be modified to suit your comfort level with proximity and... it is up to you how much or little you’d like to engage with the horses. That being said, sometimes one or more of the horses will have an opinion about what you need and when this occurs, we do our best to honour the messenger, the message and the receiver.
How will horses help me with my business? Sandra says "I could write a book about this – hmm maybe I will" And, in all seriousness...
Where are the retreats ?
This first series of retreats are being hosted at Chiron's Way a stunning and transformative equine estate in Beautiful Maple Ridge, BC. Maple Ridge is approximately 44km (28miles) North East of Vancouver, BC. As it's a private home, the actual address and direction will be provided upon registration. Please see our travel section for airport and lodging informaion.
What will I need to bring and/or wear?
This retreat will have a catered lunch both days as well as coffee/tea/snacks. In your welcome kit we'll provide you with details and menu selection.
Although the weather likely will be beautiful, please note that open toe or summer shoes of any kind will not be permitted. Safe closed toe shoes are a must around horses.
Even though it will be summer time, as Vancouver weather can be unpredictable, if you're travelling, please make sure to pack some light rain gear. While there is an indoor classroom facility in the event of inclement weather, all work with the horses will be outside.
Do you offer refunds?
Due to the intimate nature of these retreats as well as for the safety of both humans and horses, spaces are limited in order to ensure the best experience possible. As such, once you commit to yourself and request a spot, we commit that spot to you. And for that reason no refunds are offered. If due to completely unforseen and uncontrollable circumstances - such as a medical emergency, you cannot attend, please let us know and we'll happily work with you to apply your investment to a future retreat.

What if I need more support after the workshop? If you'd like to take your work deeper, we do have a limited number of VIP day and 2 Day private retreats availale. If you'd like ongoing support, both Nafissa and Sandra have a number of options available to you, either individually or as a team.

I already have a coach, should I still do this? Absolutely. What you learn during these transformational workshops will only support and enhance any other work you are already doing.
Why is this in USD? And why are you charging GST on USD
As we serve an international market - both individually and as a team, all of our programs and services are offerd in USD only. The Canada Revenue agency doesn't care what currency we work in, however they DO care that they receive 5% of the total investment for any work done in Canada. As such we are required by law to collect it.
I don’t have a business yet, is this for me? Money touches all aspects of life an business. This particular retreat is meant for anyone who desires a better relationship with money, and to reach beyond what they thought was possible.
How do I enroll? Simply click your choice of payment and investment method above and you’ll be taken to a check out form. You'll receive a confirmation email. Once your payment has cleared and our team notified, during business hours, you’ll be sent a client agreement to e-sign and return. This is important as it’s our agreement and commitment to each other. Once we receive your signed agreement you'll receive all of your welcome emails and program details (if we receive it on a holiday or weekend it will send the very next business day)
